Though the company has not revealed the exact fuel economy of the scooter yet, it estimated to be somewhere between 50kmpl to 55kmpl. We will update our readers on the same as soon as Honda reveals the mileage figure.
|Fuel Tank Capacity||3.5-litre|
In terms of dimension, the new Cliq scooter measures 1,745mm in length, 695mm in width and 1,039mm in height. The scooter sits on 1,241mm of wheelbase, while the ground clearance stands at 154mm. Its wheelbase is slightly longer than the Activa. The scooter offers a seat height of 743mm. The fuel tank capacity on this unisex scooter is just 3.5-litres, which is lesser than Navi. It is to be noted that the new Cliq has a kerb weight of 102kgs.
Tyres – As per Honda’s claim, the new Cliq rides on the new block pattern 90/100-10 53J tubeless tyre with deep grooves for extra grip on patchy roads across all weather conditions. This would even lend extra life to the tyres.
Braking System – The new Cliq comes with Honda’s CBS (Combi Braking System). The CBS unit equips an equaliser mechanism that will soon be mandatory across two-wheelers effective April 1, 2018. This system works in a such a way that as soon as the rear brakes are exerted, it applies both the front and rear brakes equally. This further improves the braking system if there is an untoward incident.
Suspension System – The suspension mechanism is handled by the spring loaded hydraulic type front and rear units.
The Cliq 110cc scooter comes in a choice of four colour options-Patriotic Red with white, Orcus Grey, Black and Moroccan Blue with White.
Featuring unique styling and new elements, the chunky scooter is a far cry from other models from the HMSI line-up. Some of its design bits have been borrowed from the Navi cross. Weighing just 102kgs, this scooter is lightweight and low. The unisex model gets a rugged design and distinctive off-road friendly feel. There is a spacious footboard up front, large seat with an under-storage compartment and an optional rear carrier.
The black tubular carrier at the back of the scooter moves towards the long and wide seat that offers enough room for the rider and pillion. Towards the sides, it looks chunky, thanks to the uniquely designed round elements. At the front fascia, the scooter wears a large front apron, which is one of the largest in the scooter segment. In addition, the scooter also comes with optional floorboard-mounted lockable boxes that provide more storage space. The tubular metal grab handle provides convenience to the pillion. Designed on the underbone-type chassis, the Honda Cliq 110cc scooter comes fitted with the new block-pattern tubeless tyres and 10-inch wheels.
With this uniquely designed scooter, Honda has opened yet another segment in the scooter space. The Cliq won’t have a direct competition in the market. Keeping pricing in mind, it should impact the sales of TVS Scooty Zest and other in its league.
